Overview

Forests of the Night by James W. Hall

With the signature mix of brooding atmosphere, unforgettable villains, and mile-a-second action that readers can expect from his Thorn series, James W. Hall takes readers on an electrifying journey of suspense in Forests of the Night...

Policewoman Charlotte Monroe has an ability that borders on psychic-to read people's faces and body language, sizing up their intentions and acting before they do. It's a real ability that the FBI is trying to teach to its agents. But Charlotte's a natural with God-given skills, and the Feds want her in the worst way, maybe even to the point of blackmail.

But Charlotte's gift fails to prepare her for the stranger who shows up on her doorstep with a chilling warning for her husband Parker, a mysterious note scrawled in Cherokee hieroglyphics: "You're next." The threat becomes more ominous as Charlotte and Parker discover the man is on the FBI Most Wanted list.

When Charlotte's deeply troubled teenage daughter runs away to join the charismatic outlaw, she follows the two of them into the spectral mists of the Great Smoky Mountains-and to the beating heart of a 150-year-old blood feud that will endanger everything she loves and challenge everything she believes.

the book had a fair storyline with interesting characters, but i felt they were not fully developed. the intuitive abilities of charlotte were almost useless to the plot.

I have read all of Hall's earlier books and was expecting a lot more from this one. I never cared about any of the characters and the dialogue in the mind of the disturbed daughter was annoying to the point of distraction. The premise of the book, the main character's ability to read murdererous intentions in a suspects face went absolutely nowhere. If you want to read Hall, read anything other than this one.

Laural Merlington, a veteran of countless audio book performances, is a true pro. She reads with control and distinction, allowing the narrative to carry listeners along. Forests of the Night will more than carry listeners along - it'll have them on the edges of their seats. Charlotte Monroe is a police woman with amazing gifts - she can read people's faces and body language. She lives in Coral Gable, Florida with her husband, Parker, and their emotionally disturbed teenager, Gracey. Gracey is so unstable that she runs away from home to be with an outlaw, not just any outlaw but Jacob Panther, a criminal on the FBI's most wanted list. The chase to find Gracey and Panther takes Charlotte to the Great Smoky Mountains and Cherokee land. Little does she know that she's now not only in North Carolina but also smack in the middle of a Cherokee feud that's been going on for over 150 years. Hall. As always creates complex characters - no stick figures here - and parallel plots. Makes for an absorbing story and good listening. - Gail Cooke

In her Coral Gables, Florida home, police detective Charlotte Monroe shockingly sees her spouse Parker and their daughter Gracey amiably talking with Jacob Bright Sky Panther, who she recognizes from the FBI's Most Wanted list. Jacob escapes abducting Gracey. Stunned, Charlotte questions her husband who reluctantly confesses that Jacob is his son from a summer affair with a Cherokee woman years ago in a North Carolina camp owned by his father. That same season arson burned down the camp killing his dad.--- Charlotte believes that Gracey is being held in the North Carolina Mountains near the sight of the burned out camp. There Charlotte and Parker hope to rescue their daughter though the latter does not believe his son would harm his stepsister. Making matters more complex is bad blood flows, as it has for over a hundred sixty years, between whites and Native Americans, placing their teenage daughter in further jeopardy.--- The opening prequel from 1838 is incredible, which makes for a tough act to follow, but for the most part James W. Hall achieves the objective. The exhilarating story line is at its best when either the felon Jacob or the schizoid Gracey serves as the focus as these two characters seem so genuine. Charlotte is an intriguing police officer with unique talents that surface as she behaves like a lioness seeking to rescue her cub. On the other hand, Parker, as the key link between the players, is one dimensional and never comes across as someone in conflict struggling between what to do for his two offspring. Fans will relish this tense thriller especially when the action moves to the Carolina mountainside.--- Harriet Klausner
